  • Description

    We are a swiss couple taking a year off to travel and learn and teach about agriculture, building, permaculture and nature in purpose to settle in self sufficient way one day.

    I'm biologist, I'm working as wilderness guide in this association http://lalibellule.ch/. I love to spend time in nature, collect wild medicinal and edible plants and watching animals.
    I like ecological gardening, have a pdc in permaculture and created some gardens and edible ecosystems.

    I'm an ornithologist and I love also gardening, playing theatre and riding my bicycle. And of course, I go to sleep quite often with Jérôme in nature.
